# Math.Tanh Method

.NET Framework 2.0

Returns the hyperbolic tangent of the specified angle.

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

```public:
static double Tanh (
double value
)
```
```public static double Tanh (
double value
)
```
```public static function Tanh (
value : double
) : double
```

value

#### Return Value

The hyperbolic tangent of value. If value is equal to NegativeInfinity, this method returns -1. If value is equal to PositiveInfinity, this method returns 1. If value is equal to NaN, this method returns NaN.

The angle, value, must be in radians. Multiply by π/180 to convert degrees to radians.

The following example uses Tanh to evaluate certain hyperbolic tangent identities for selected values.

```// Example for the hyperbolic Math::Tanh( double ) method.
using namespace System;

// Evaluate hyperbolic identities with a given argument.
void UseTanh( double arg )
{
double tanhArg = Math::Tanh( arg );

// Evaluate tanh(X) == sinh(X) / cosh(X).
Console::WriteLine( "\n                        Math::Tanh({0}) == {1:E16}\n"
"      Math::Sinh({0}) / Math::Cosh({0}) == {2:E16}", arg, tanhArg, (Math::Sinh( arg ) / Math::Cosh( arg )) );

// Evaluate tanh(2 * X) == 2 * tanh(X) / (1 + tanh^2(X)).
Console::WriteLine( "                    2 * Math::Tanh({0}) /", arg, 2.0 * tanhArg );
Console::WriteLine( "              (1 + (Math::Tanh({0}))^2) == {1:E16}", arg, 2.0 * tanhArg / (1.0 + tanhArg * tanhArg) );
Console::WriteLine( "                        Math::Tanh({0}) == {1:E16}", 2.0 * arg, Math::Tanh( 2.0 * arg ) );
}

// Evaluate a hyperbolic identity that is a function of two arguments.
void UseTwoArgs( double argX, double argY )
{

// Evaluate tanh(X + Y) == (tanh(X) + tanh(Y)) / (1 + tanh(X) * tanh(Y)).
Console::WriteLine( "\n    (Math::Tanh({0}) + Math::Tanh({1})) /\n"

Console::WriteLine( "                        Math::Tanh({0}) == {1:E16}", argX + argY, Math::Tanh( argX + argY ) );
}

{
